Reviews

Super easy conversion and installation. Kannad made the process virtually seamless. I did have to drill 4 holes but that improved the security of the unit.

Installed very easily. Appears well made. Very straight forward for Cessna 182T using factory location to accept Kannaâs backplate with stock locations. Will need slightly longer screws is all.

My old Ameri-King 451 failed inspection, so I had to find a replacement. Simple install: remove old base plate... Kannad had a universal base plate. Connect adapters for line. Antenna. Remove/replace remote switch, test and done. Built in GPS, so connections to GPS unit needed.

Positive: itâs a straightforward replacement for the old Ameri-King. Negative: the first unit failed out of the box. Aircraft Spruce gets points for promptly shipping a replacement.

Q&A

Q: Is the 6 year battery owner-replaceable, or does it have to be done by the factory, or an A&P?

Yes it is capable that the owner can replace the battery, please check with your installer to ensure paperwork is done properly.

Q: Which specific type of batteries are used? Where can they be purchased?

Please view part # 11-06297 for the replacement batteries for this ELT.

Q: I dont see the antenna listed as one of the items "In the box". Am I to assume that the existing AmeriKing antenna for the 451 will work?

No, the antenna does not come in this kit. The old cannot be used as it is not apart of the for the Kannad ELT.

Q: Does the Kannad Ameri-King Ameri-Fit Retrofit ELT include an internal GPS?

Per the Manual, yes this does have an internal GPS antenna for increased accuracy in case of an emergency.

Q: Is this ELT, part #11-16086 a drop in size wise for the Ameri King AK-450?

The size for the AK-450 Size: 4.27"W, 2.95"H, 5.64"L.
The size for the Kannad is: 6.89 x 3.90 x 3.40 inches
You will need to install the new tray mount for 11-16086.

Q: Will the remote control panel for the Ameri-king 451 need to be replaced, or will the wiring plug into the Kannad Integra AF?

Yes the AK-451 remote switch will need to be replaced. The Ameri-king retrofit kit comes with the switch and wire adapter for the Kannad Interga AF system.

Q: Since this does not come with an antenna and the Ameri-King antenna is not useable for this unit, what antennas are compatible with this ELT?

This unit is meant to retrofit an existing Ameri-king installation. If the components of your existing Ameri-king installation are not functional, then you will need a complete new installation ELT kit.

Q: If I am replacing an Ameri King ELT do I need a form 337 or can I just use a log book entry? If I need a 337 what data can I use I did not see any STCs.

This unit is TSO'D, so you will need a 337.

Q: Whats the difference between USA and international? Which one do I need if I fly primarily in the USA with occasional trips to Mexico?

The difference is in the programming. If you have a USA registered aircraft, then order the USA version. If your aircraft is registered outside the USA, then you will need the international version.

Q: If the old antenna cannot be used, then what one is recommended to order for this Kannad retrofit kit?

You can use the AV-200 antenna per the installation manual.
